Hi!

I copied text ole.rohne@cern.ch (using gpm), pasted it to emacs (right
mouse button) in another console and it came out as
oooooole.rohne@cern.ch. That looks extremely weird and suggests that
repeated characters are indeed software problem.

Its not reproducible, and nothing interesting in logs :-(.

you can use "C-h l" (or "F1 l") next time to see emacs' idea of the last
few keystrokes. I'm guessing it was meta-6 or ctrl-u (if it was only four
'o's).

I can't be sure... I do not think I pressed that, but it certainly is
possible that I wanted to switch consoles and pressed that by mistake.

Hmmm, are you sure you hadn't pressed meta-6 before pasting it in?
